This book traces the creative evolution of the renowned Mexican documentary filmmaker Eugenio Polgovsky. It covers his early photographic work, consisting of potent images that already display his signature traits; feature-length documentaries of exceptional beauty that reference the iniquities permeating the Mexican social fabric; and his short films, forceful and explosive capsules of reality. Mara Polgovsky has lovingly curated the voices of film critics, scholars, and filmmakers to bring to life the work of this celebrated director and cinematographer, who died in 2017.
